Retired - Golden Reeds Necklace

PROJECT N5006
Designer: Becky Nunn
Skill Level: Intermediate
Textured wire and bits of rhinestone cup chain mimic flowers and reeds in this pretty Crystal Clay necklace pendant, designed exclusively for Beadaholique by Nunn Design founder Becky Nunn.
Instructions
  1. Before beginning this project, please watch our video: how to use Crystal Clay.
  2. To see how to make the pendant for this necklace, please watch the video: how to make a framed pendant with wire, rhinestone cup chain and Crystal Clay by Becky Nunn. In the video you will learn how to texturize and cut your wire "reeds," cut rhinestone cup chain, hammer a Nunn Design wire frame and mold Crystal Clay into it. You will also learn how to embed wire and cup chain pieces into Crystal Clay.
  3. When your pendant is finished, let the clay cure 14 to 16 hours, or overnight.
  4. Open a jump ring. Slide it through the loop at the top of the wire frame pendant. Close the jump ring.
  5. Slide your 2-foot length of ball chain through the jump ring from the previous step. Attach a ball chain connector clasp to close the necklace.
  6. Enjoy your necklace!
